LONG BEACH, Calif. - Long Beach State men's water polo player Nolan McConnell will be competing with the USA Water Polo Men's Junior National Team in the 17th FINA World Men's Junior Water Polo Championship. The 16-team tournament will be held in Szombathely, Hungary August 12-18. McConnell will have a familiar face on staff as former LBSU Graduate Assistant Athletic Trainer Matt Brandt recently joined the USA Water Polo athletic training staff.
As a true freshman, McConnell was third on the team with 47 goals on the season as Long Beach State finished fifth in both the MPSF Tournament and national rankings. The Laguna Beach, Calif. product earned All-MPSF Honorable Mention his first year thanks to a 1.52 goals per game average along with 15 multi-goal matches.
The men's junior national team will open against Spain on August 12 before facing off against Slovakia. USA will then conclude Group C pool play versus Russia.
